We have a very active calendar of events based around our yearly productions of a winter production, a play and a musical production. Alongside this we have our exciting and talented Next Generation youth theatre group which meets weekly and produces its own productions throughout the year. The Society is based at Woodend Mill in Mossley where we have our own mini theatre, rehearsal rooms and workshop facilities. Our major productions are held at our long-standing theatre home - the George Lawton Hall Theatre , Mossley. Please take a few minutes to browse our web site —we are multiple awards winners for our productions, so if you are interested in theatre, our productions are well worth viewing!

Leeds Amateur Operatic Society is a leading musical theatre company with a reputation for spectacular and professional productions. In the interests of public safety in the current escalating public health situation, the LAOS production of My Fair Lady has regrettably been abandoned. This is not a cancellation or postponement but is an abandonment of the production.
Amateur theatre , also known as amateur dramatics , is theatre performed by amateur actors and singers. Amateur theatre groups may stage plays, revues, musicals, light opera, pantomime or variety shows, and do so for the social activity as well as the artistic side. Productions may take place in venues ranging from the open air, community centres or schools to independent or major professional theatres and can be simple light entertainment or demanding drama. Amateur theatre is distinct from the professional or community theatre simply in that participants are not paid, although this is not always the case, even though the productions staged may be commercial ventures, either to fund further productions, to benefit the community, or for charity. Amateur actors are not typically members of actors' unions, as these organisations exist to protect the professional industry and discourage their members from working with companies which are not signatories to union contracts.
